Ghana's No. 1

Nyaho Tamakloe wants John Mensah confirmed as Ghana captain

Former Ghana Football Association boss Nyaho Tamakloe wants the FA to end the Black Stars captaincy debate by confirming John Mensah status.

The future of the Sunderland strongman to be made the substantive captain has been hanging since he was handed the armband after the international retirement of enigmatic Stephen Appiah.

Even though he has been working in the position he has refused to call himself the captain of the Black Stars on his personal website as he prefers to be known only as the deputy.

But the former GFA chief wants the issue resolved quickly.

"John has been acting in the position very well and I think he’s distinguished himself so for and will b proper to be made the permanent captain of the team," Tamakloe said.

"He has shown he has enough quality both on and off the pitch and so I believe he’ll make a great captain to take over from Stephen Appiah."

The Black Stars captaincy destroyed the team when Kwasi Appiah was stripped of the armband and handed to Abedi Pele in 1991.

With this history in mind, measures must be taken by new Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic and crucially Ghana FA officials who know the background of the Black Stars captaincy that created serious divisions in the squad, affecting the talented team for many years.
